Cannot use biometrics in Non-secured screen lock after upgrading to Android Oreo OS
Due to new Google's Security Policy, features (Samsung Pay, Samsung Pass, 3rd Party Apps) that use biometrics (face, fingerprints, and irises) are only available when you use a secure screen lock type (Pattern, PIN, or Password) in Android Oreo OS environment. Biometric authentication will be suspended for unlocking and verification in Apps if non-secure screen type (Swipe, None) is used.
If you have been using biometrics without a secured screen lock before upgrading, you will be able to continue using it after upgrading.
